The first day of the Olympic selection trials in Melbourne saw Andy Jung come out on top in both the 500m and 1500m events.
Australia has secured one male quota in short track speed skating for PyeongChang 2018 in the two distances, and four of the nation’s speedsters are battling it out for the elusive spot.
20-year-old Jung, who secured Australia’s quota place for the Games during the World Cup season, won the 1500m by a solid margin over teammate and Sochi Olympian Pierre Boda, but only just pipped Boda on the line in the 500m event.
Keanu Blunden came in third for both events, with Liam O’Brien in fourth.
At the end of the first day, Jung is leading the Olympic selection trial on a total of 68 points ahead of Boda on 42, Blunden on 26 and O’Brien on 16.
